Native Americans and early settlers saw the prairie as their home – a place that supplied everything from groceries to textiles to medicine to love charms.

Cindy Crosby is the author, compiler, or contributor to more than 20 books, including “Tallgrass Prairie Converstaions: In Search of the Prairie Spirit” (with Thomas Dean, 2017). Learn more about Cindy at www.cindycrosby.com.
